Right, but Animus of Predation is a particular archetype of card that gets abilities based on the abilities of other creatures you control-- it'd be akin to saying black gets vigilance because of Soulflayer, or that white gets deathtouch because of Odric, Lunar Marshal.

@Neo, Tarvoc: Would making it a 6/6 suffice or would turning it into a 7/7 rare at the same cost be better?

@Fermat: 7/7? Making it even stronger? We said it was too strong at this cost. I honestly think having it at 5/5 for 4 mana symbolBlue mana symbol is a stretch. At 6/6, I'd recommend upping the cost by at least 1 mana symbol.

My colors: Freedom (Red mana symbol) through Knowledge (Blue mana symbol) and Organization (White mana symbol).

@Tarvoc: Chill, mate. A happy smile Updated it already based off the iconic Mahamoti Djinn (which, apparently, under current creature standards, is uncommon), and the fact a "processed" card pays for about 2 mana symbol to 2 mana symbolHalf Mana.

Yeah, that works. A happy smile

[edit] Btw. is there a reason why this thread doesn't seem to appear in the sub-forum's thread list?

Im unsure if abilites can remember what cards had ben cast for of mana. I haven't seen abilites before doing this. Does this design work???

Edit entry based on feedback.

NOTE: That you dont pay mana for the tokens so they will not make tokens.

@Pixi-Rex Using some kind of counters could work. Buuut then it'd interact with stuff like Proliferate, and I'm not sure if you want that. Also, I'd say this is already pretty damn powerful. Let's say you cast this on turn 5 with five swamps. Turn 6, you can pump it up to 25/2 - or 30/2 if you get another swamp out. Your opponent has one turn to either get a flyer out, kill it, or lose. For 5 mana symbolBlack mana symbol, that seems outright brutal.

@Tarvoc: when you put i like that, its too powerfull. It was just the design seemed so fun, but in reality its broken. I have to fix it some way. I could just say it enters the battlefield with +1/+0 counters, but then it just lose what shades are known for. So the only thing i can think of, is it make tokens instead.

Different time zones. It's still 2017 for me for the next two hours. I think it takes yet another 8 hours more or so for people in the US. But anyway, thank you. A happy smile
